APGO Medical Student Educational Objectives for Students

The APGO Medical Student Educational Objectives are reviewed on a regular basis by the APGO Undergraduate Medical Education Committee (UMEC) to ensure their relevance, importance and helpfulness in assisting with the development of obstetrics and gynecology clinical clerkship curricula.

Companion videos and teaching cases are also available to help ob-gyn medical students become proficient in the topics outlined in the APGO Medical Student Educational Objectives. The Student versions are for use by medical students for self-study and contain teaching case(s), questions and references (the Student versions do not include answers). View all of the Medical Student Objectives Videos on the APGO YouTube Channel.
